With over 20 years teaching and playing experience, I believe, first and foremost, that drumset lessons should be FUN! I provide a supportive and nurturing environment where you the student can work towards unlocking your musical potential without fear of intimidation or judgment. You will help create your own unique lesson path and structure, selecting books, songs, genres, and learning methods that work best for YOU. A typical lesson involves listening, playing, notation-reading, discussion, basic drills, and more. Together we'll work to achieve YOUR goals, be that playing professionally, joining a band, or simply learning a few of your favorite tunes. Most of all, we'll work toward tapping into the joy, ecstasy, and FUN, that only music can provide!

I recently started to learn the drums and I am glad I'm learning from Jeremy. He is very patient and always asks if I have any questions. He helps me understand something by giving examples. I am learning a lot from Jeremy as my drumming instructor.

Jeremy was my first drum teacher and he was wonderful. He had a very focused teaching approach that made the path of progress clear. He keeps lessons fun while informative. He is a kind and encouraging teacher who is invested in his students.

"Matthew is a fantastic drum teacher. My 8 year old son recently started lessons with Matthew, and he is so excited to come home and practice. Matthew's home studio is immaculate and inviting for budding musicians! Thank you Matthew for making our son's first experience with lessons challenging and fun at the same time. I am even learning musical terminology with my son ( I even secretly practice the drums when no one is around - it's like 2 for the price of one!)."

"I always enjoy my drumming lessons with Keith. Aside from being an all around kindhearted and fun individual, he is an extremely knowledgeable, experienced and patient instructor. He has the rare ability to distill his knowledge and experience, and then convey it to the student in a way that is understandable so that the student is able to apply it. As a result, improvement is fast and fun in the process. Additionally, as an adult beginner, time for practice as well as instruction comes at a premium, thereby making his effective teaching style even more valuable. Thanks Keith."

"Fantastic!!!

My son started taking trumpet lessons with Jesse last summer, but soon confessed that he really didn't like the instrument. He asked if he could try drums. I suggested that he do that and perhaps try some guitar or keyboards also. He has stuck with drums and loves it, but also asked Jesses to help him with a vocal song he'd like to perform for his school's talent show this spring. I LOVE the fact that Jesse can help him try out so many different aspects of musicianship in his fabulous in-house studio! The first "recital"/jam session was so amazing that my 9 year old daughter asked if she could also take lessons with Jesse. Now both of my kiddos are singing, Jamming and keyboarding together, and it is so much fun.
I hated piano lessons as a kid. I was always in trouble for not practicing enough, but everything the teacher gave me to work on was so unappealing. I wanted a different music experience for my kids. I have found it with Jesse. He is so talented and inspiring. He listens to his students and gently moves them to accomplish amazing results. With his back help, even beginning students can feel like they are part of a band and really making music.
I feel so fortunate to have found Jesse and for my kids to have such a positive and well rounded musical introduction. I have even decided to take guitar lessons for myself now!
My husband had similar negative music experience as I did as a child and was very negative about my efforts to have our kids take music lessons at all until he came to the first recital/jam session at Jesse's studio. He loved it and could completely appreciate how much fun the kids were having learning how to play music in a more modern and flexible environment."

"Josh is an exceptional teacher. At first, I was not confident at all with my playing; I didn't know where to start. But once we began our lessons, he instilled the confidence in me that I needed to get to the next level. He is communicative, friendly, and professional. I would recommend his lessons to anyone who wants a great, dedicated teacher!

Our 8 Best Tips for Effective Drum Practice

What’s more important: the amount of drum practice you do, or the quality of the  practice? Although you might be tempted to lock yourself in your room for a week to goof around on the drums, studies have shown that the amount of practice isn’t always an indicator of outstanding drumming performance. Rather, drummers who employ long practice sessions of average quality will never perform at high level. And high-quality practice over short periods of time won’t help drummers achieve the re …
